Stormy weather will make a return for the weekend followed by drier weather and sunshine into the new week.

Thunderstorms will threaten afternoon activities on Sunday and the chance of storms will continue into the evening hours.

Highs will reach the upper 70s as high pressure slides off to the east of the area, AccuWeather.com Meteorlogist Brian Edwards said.

"Skies will turn mostly cloudy Saturday night into Sunday with a few showers and thunderstorms expected by Sunday midday and afternoon," he said. "There will be a few showers or thunderstorms affecting the area so be sure to take along the umbrella if you have any outdoor activities planned."

Those planning on spending time in the sun should take proper precautions and continually apply sunscreen throughout the day.

"Drier weather moves in for Tuesday and Wednesday with a good deal of sunshine both days and highs near 80," he said.
